Sports and the Chiropractic Lifestyle

Athletes, Chiropractor, Sports

Spinal injuries can restrict range of motion, reduce strength, slow reflexes, shorten endurance, and decrease performance. Chiropractic care for these types of injuries has become increasingly popular: Professional sports teams, Olympic Trainers, and competitive athletes are employing chiropractic doctors—because they demand results.

Chiropractic care helps restore function to the spinal joints that are fixated and not moving properly. Besides helping to relieve pain, chiropractic care can also help reduce inflammation. Muscles, tendons and ligaments depend upon proper joint movement for peak performance. Injuries to these tissues can reduce range of motion, decrease blood supply, and literally “take you out of the game.”

Normalizing spinal function helps speed the healing of these soft tissues and reduce deconditioning effect of being on the sidelines. An aerobic exercise program or a plan of brisk walking can improve muscle tone and help you recover from strains, sprains, and other activity-restricting health problems.

Whether you golf, play tennis, bicycle, or bowl, the best treatment for sports injuries is prevention! Ask your Doctor of Chiropractic for a care plan based on your age, condition, and health objectives. Find out if chiropractic care can help restore your health, improve your performance, and increase your competitive edge.

Problems can start with the spine and affect the extremities, or they can begin with an extremity, like a knee or an ankle and then create further compensation problems in the spine. Either way, many sports-related injuries involve the spine. Professional athletes, “weekend warriors” and those who just want to remain fit, are discovering the benefits of regular chiropractic care. Will you make the discovery too?
